‘Behind The Table’: A Special Podcast Series From ‘the View’
With its new podcast, “Behind the Table,” “The View” takes an amazing journey inside the chat show that has been making headlines since Barbara Walters first uttered the phrase, “I had this idea for a show.”
Walters set out in 1997 to create a show that celebrated strong women and their different viewpoints. The Emmy-winning chat show is celebrating its broadcast success with a special podcast series twenty-five years later.
“Behind the Table” will premiere new episodes every Tuesday, featuring candid and revealing conversations, never-before-heard stories, firsthand details behind headline-making controversies, and moments that firmly cemented the talk show in pop culture history from the incredible women who have sat at the infamous Hot Topics table.
Who Will Appear in the Show?
